West Windsor Arts presents Night Visions – American Art after Hours with Janet Mandel

(PRINCETON JUNCTION, NJ) -- Join West Windsor Arts for Night Visions – American Art after Hours with Janet Mandel on Thursday, December 21, 2023 from noon to 1:00pm. This exciting lunchtime series brings you new topics on the arts from local and regional organizations, museums and galleries. Each session features presentations from various experts, online with Zoom.

Nocturnal images have been central to the development of modern art. Leading American artists of many different aesthetic traditions, working in a range of media including painting, drawings, prints, sculpture, and photographs, were inspired by the unique challenges of picturing the night. Mysterious and provocative, the darkness was experienced as liberating, allowing artists to express personal truths in poetic ways.

This presentation, just in time for the Winter Solstice, will demonstrate how visual artists, just like writers and musicians, have found the transformative power of the night a magical, compelling subject.

The Lunchtime Gallery Series is free to West Windsor Arts Members (any level) and $10 to all others. Everyone must register, please click here for the registration page. Zoom link will be sent the day before the event.

Janet Mandel taught Art History, English, and World Languages and Cultures in New Jersey’s public schools for 32 years. In October of 2003 she was named runner-up for the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH) Teacher of the Year award and was formally recognized by the New Jersey State Legislature and Governor Codey for this achievement. In May of 2004 she was the recipient of the “Innovations in Special Education Award” from the New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) and the Association of Schools and Agencies for the Handicapped (ASAH). Now retired, Janet presents illustrated talks on a variety of art history topics.
